Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Wings of Bling Dragonfly Plant Stake

It's time for the Designer Crafts Connection blog hop!  This month our theme was "Bling".  I created this quick & easy dragonfly plant stake with "Wings of Bling" to add a bit of springtime sparkle to one of my houseplants.    Be sure to follow through the Designer Crafts Connection link in the column on the right to see what other "bling" projects our designers are sharing!  

Materials: 

Plaid® Wood Surfaces - Dragonfly
The Buckle Boutique Dazzling Diamond Self-Adhesive Rhinestone Sheets - Purple, Gold, Green
Wooden dowel
Ad-Tech glue gun & glue sticks
Westcott® Titanium Bonded Non-Stick Scissors
Green craft paint, paint brush

Instructions:

I apologize for not having step-out photos - my lovely computer seems to be having a bit of fun right now making photos I have saved vanish into cyberworld where I cannot locate them.....

1)  Use the tips of scissors to carefully pull part the top piece of the dragonfly's body from the base piece with the wings.

2) Trace the separate body section onto the back of Green Dazzling Diamonds sheet and onto back of Gold.  Cut out and adhere green to separate body.

3) Mount gold body to center of dragonfly.

4) Trace dragonfly onto Purple Dazzling Diamonds sheet.  Cut out wings, adhere to wooden body.

5) Use hot glue to mount green body over gold body - green body is slightly smaller and gold will show slightly around edges.

6) Paint back of dragonfly and wooden dowel with green paint, let dry.  Hot glue dowel to base of dragonfly.
